"Most people remember what famous people wore when they met; I remember what they ate." In her 60-year career, Renee Taylor has been nominated for an Academy Award, performed stand-up comedy with Barbra Streisand as her opening act, and starred in movies like Mel Brooks' The Producers and TV shows like The Nanny and How I Met Your Mother. Needless to say, this Hollywood legend has seen it all. She's also tried every diet in existence, no matter how insane or hilarious. Now she takes the stories in her best-selling book, My Life on a Diet: Confessions of a Hollywood Diet Junkie, and shares them on stage in a funny and nostalgic tell-all that's packed with juicy gossip and lots of laughs. Highlights of this staged reading include the dieting advice she received from Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford, as well as tales of many other famous co-stars with whom Taylor worked, accompanied by video and slides.

My four year old daughter loved the show. The actors have done a great job. Although some of them were not as good at others, in general, the show was performed quite greatly. Elves coming out during the intermission showing some tricks to children was a nice move!
The Grove Theatre is proud to announce the opening of the “cutest” Christmas show you’ll ever see, The Elves and The Shoemaker. The shoemaker has a kind heart but little money in his pocket. Moved by the plight of an old beggar man, he gives him his last pair of shoes. The poor shoemaker has leather enough to make only one more pair of shoes and sets out to work on them on Christmas Eve morning. Then, the fun begins! Out pop five weird, endearing little elves who whip up the most fantastic and magical shoes the little town has ever seen. Here's an upbeat, fast-paced retelling of an old favorite, based on a Grimm fairy tale, filled with delightfully wacky characters and clever dialogue. This upbeat, whimsical romp of a fantasy also holds a gentle message about the nature of kindness.
